Cats are interesting animals in that they’re so flexible. They can figure out ways to fit in just about any location, including, as you can see, in an open toilet. Evidently there’s no water in this particular commode, or I doubt that Kitty here would have bothered getting in, because they generally don’t like getting wet (although there is a breed called the Turkish van who loves the water and goes for a swim whenever she can).
It’s amazing how they do it. They seem to know just how to turn their body so they can fit as much of it as possible into a small space. We had several that would curl up in one of our Dutch ovens if we made the mistake of leaving one on a counter. We had one that particularly liked a large mixing bowl, and we’d find her lying in it with just her head poking up.
I suppose they have a good reason to do that sometimes. Hiding seems to be a feline habit, even though there’s nothing to hide from. Sometimes I think they do it to drive us crazy…
